A fluid that slows the drying time of acrylic paints and mediums by up to 40%. An absolutely essential additive if working in drier climates. Mix into the paint when on the palette to slow the skinning-over of paint and increase blending time. Should not add more than 25% as there is no binder and it can weaken the stability of the paint film when too much is added.

  • Your acrylics larder staple - Liquitex Slow-Dri Fluid Retarder 118ml

    Always have some lurking. You might think it a little heavy on the pocket. But 1 bottle lasts for ages. I only just bought my second bottle 3 years after the first.
    A real life saver when working with thin paint for blending without pigment graininess. Galeria range is a good fall-back but has a slightly thicker viscosity and feels a bit more "slimey". Jim Lomas (Colchester, United Kingdom) on 28 Aug 2014
